Kiwi drift driver Mad Mike Whiddett returns for another season of Formula Drift competition.
The Formula Drift series is the premier US drifting series that drivers from all around the world aspire to compete in, since it’s first round in 2004.
Returning to the series after walking away with the Fan Favourite award in 2015, kiwi driver Mad Mike Whiddett and his generation2 RADBUL (Mazda MX5), get ready to let loose on the track. Due to treacherous rain conditions in the usually sunny Long Beach, California, the Formula Drift judges had no choice but to cancel the qualifying round.
“This was such a bummer, as for me coming from New Zealand, we have experience in these conditions” says Mad Mike. “As a team, we love the challenge of adapting to the track and weather, whatever it may bring.”
In this clip, Mad Mike and RADBUL have arrived stateside, ready to race in the first round of the competition.
